3:01 PM Howard needed a holeshot to have a chance against Meyer, who has been consistently about a tenth quicker all weekend. She didn't get it because Meyer left her no room on the tree, then ran away and hid by a tenth of a second, the margin of victory = 0.105 seconds (approximately 39 feet).

   4 Dave Hirata         5.633 255.00  Q    1 Rick Santos         5.527 256.94
   (R Bayne     ) 0.503  5.525 261.12  E1   (B Reichert  ) 0.444  5.453 257.73

 *****WINNER***** 0.467  5.384 267.16  E3                  0.423  5.434 258.81
This is a great matchup, the best of the blower cars against the best of the nitro burners. The race was all you'd expect, the outcome a bit of a surprise, Santos drilling the tree and Hirata resetting the track record on an extremely quick, extremely fast run. Margin of victory = 0.006 seconds (approximately 2 feet). Hirata has lane choice against Meyer in the final round.
